    I'm sorry but the only one saying anything about the second coming is you. Fans of a game accept its flaws and strengths.

    Ok, tell the truth people...

     

     

    Doing something like that in PVP/Arena would be awesome.......

    And people claim WoW doesn't have dynamic events!
  • AlotAlot BredaPosts: 1,948Member

    Oh I'm sorry, I tried to kill WoW but ended up killing everyone in WoW. It seems my targeting system was set to "Global AoE" instead of "Single-target".

    Sorry again, won't happen next time! : )

    Epic video!

     

    Everyone was getting tired of those boring denial of service attacks anyways.  Finally something new to bring entertainment to WoW.

    Well if it's a GM, it's soon to be an ex-GM

    u know its the 3rd hack in wow history

  • itgrowlsitgrowls newport news, VAPosts: 2,951Member

    Interesting, yeah i knew this was happening because my roomie is waiting for the servers to come back up.

    Funny, been talked to a thousand times about the game I'm playing now, three guesses which one, and how they don't have authenticators so my characters aren't safe, but this ....this is just astonishing. 

    Then again, it's not really because you see, my account was hacked twice by gold farmers even with an authenticator and the second time they had help from the inside. GM's who were getting kickbacks from the gold farmers to remove security long enough to hack the accounts. It was in the news, just not mainstream news so it wasn't noticed.

  • kaliniskalinis Dexter, MEPosts: 1,428Member

    servers were back up just can't log in , They say is there authentication servers. Either way , Hacked or not this sucks if u want to get in game and can't 

    There is nothing funny with hacking by the way.its illegal for a reason. These people dont just cause inconvienience they steal account info and peoples credit card info and then people's money , 

    there is nothing funny in that.

    here's a video of the hacker guy

     

    using something called "wowplus" seems to be german although his identity on ownedcore.com says he's from australia.

    Please tell me you are joking. Do you have a link to the story or video?

  • AusareAusare adamstown, MDPosts: 850Member
    Supposedly people are saying on the forum that they gave themselves GM powers and Blizz caught on and started banning them so they made a last laugh and attacked cities before they were shut out.
  • kaliniskalinis Dexter, MEPosts: 1,428Member

    ive never been hacked in wow in 6 yrs. Then i dont go buying gold from gold sellers i dont respond to u can win this mount emails or any of that. 

    I have an authenticator and ive never been hacked. Not once, 

    Companies get hacked all the time Just look at soe.  hell gw2 has been hacked already and they haven't been out that long. 

    it happens. They will fix the authenticator servers i just wish had done so by nowl

    Bet the corpses spell out a goldselling web address...

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

    Harder to stop something you do not know exists than break something that already exists.

    I seriously doubt someone inside Blizzard is giving access to your account. 

     

    I would believe that you got hacked in the one way authenticators are useless, and that's a man in the middle attack.

    Funny but not as cool as the Hakkar tainted blood plague.

    Is a man not entitled to the herp of his derp?

    Remember, I live in a world where juggalos and yugioh players are real things.

  • roo67roo67 londonPosts: 402Member

    LoL maybe this explains that increase of a million players . They were all hackers .

    Or maybe its just the zombie appocolyse :P

    Agreed.  Sadly, I wasn't there, but I read about it.  A virtual world epidemic... simply awesome.
